    So, I attach my Sirius player via cig lighter. Suddenly, it has stopped working. I checked the fuses, I blew the one under the dash (15A) and one under the hood (20A) called Outlet or something. I replaced both, both fuses blow again.

    Could my cig lighter adapter be fucked up?

    (I never made a post using the word blown without talking about sex)

    Did it blow the 2nd time with the Sirius unit plugged in or unplugged?

    I have a Xterra, and it has two 12V adapters up front. Plugged it in the usual one, didn't work. Plugged it into the second one I never use, it worked. Turned off the unit, plugged it back into the second one, didn't work.

    Mind you, I just finished a headunit install, battery was disconnected when installing, problem occurs after battery is reconnected.
